According to the National Enquirer, Brad Pitt has sworn off conventional soaps. He has "recently started using a homemade concoction of lemons, water and apple cider vinegar instead," an anon source said. "Brad says he's read up on the toxins of soap—especially the antibacterial ones—and feels that using them and antiperspirants is not only bad for the planet, but it also speeds up the aging process in humans." Supposedly the kids and Angelina think he stinks. [National Enquirer via]
